Movie Reviews

Great for the classroom
08/28/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love this movie for how simple, entertaining and close to the original story it is. I am a 6th grade teacher, and for the past two years my class has read the story and watched this movie version. Last year, my kids said that it was much better than the gory Tim Burton one. I am so excited to be able to buy a copy since my taped-from-TV copy is getting worn from use!"
Much better than Burton's version!

"Sorry, but I strongly disagree with the other reviews here about this version of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". Tim Burton's version, whilst midly entertaining, is a travesty of an adaption of the original story by Washington Irving. As a historian, I highly recommend this version, given it's faithfulness to the original story, and it's overall authentic portrayal of life in 1790's America. There are a few details that they get wrong, such as Squire Van Tassel's statement that the Battle of Sleepy Hollow was in 1774, a year before the Revolution began, but overall, someone did some research for this version. The costumes, material culture displayed, the portrayal of the Dutch "Yorkers" and their contempt for "Yankees" and taxes -- I would use this in my history class.

In short, if "it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Burton's version is just another historical, inauthentic and inaccurate mess that history teachers, librarians and museum folks have to clean up.

This one is on my shelf, right next to "The Devil and Daniel Webster", another classic of American folklore and literature.

Quite different...

"Well, firstly, this movie is FAR from the gothic, Johnny Depp film. Not one moment of gore in the entire feature, which makes it on the whole an enjoyable family flick, although an obvious British, low budget production.Still recommended, though..."
NOT low budget

"My husband worked on the NY portion of the film.. and it was far from low budget. It was a beautiful film (I guess that's why it won the Oscar for Set Decoration), well directed and funny (even though I don't think it was always supposed to be funny) It was a pleasure watching the film take form by visiting sets, and it was an incredible finished product."
